Whenever I have a craving, I drink some water and wait half an hour. Usually, the craving will pass on its own. If it doesn't, I eat a small portion. To avoid overeating, I make sure to only take a small portion; for example, if I want ice cream, I'll put one scoop in a small bowl and take the bowl to another room. That's usually enough for the craving and it keeps me from going back for more.

i'm with you- best to avoid or i tend to go overboard! the other thing that works for me is to plan out my special treat/meal ahead of time and track that day early- keeps me on track and i can quell the 'cravings' by remembering that i'm having something more decadent on whatever day :)

I stink at it. I try controlled portions of what I'm craving. Sometimes that works. I'm best off not fulfilling the craving - doing so often leads to a binge state. I'm better off struggling through til it passes.
